Known as a village of artists, this cosmopolitan enclave has attracted artists for many years, inspiring renowned literary, musical and pictorial works.

This prestigious chamber-music festival allows its public to enjoy select musical pieces in idyllic settings. The feast of Sant Joan, the patron saint, takes place around June 24th, with all kinds of recreational activities fusing tradition and modernity. Cultural highlights include the house-museum of Robert Graves, famous British poet, author of I, Claudius, who lived in the town for many years and is buried in its cemetery; the Son Marroig house-museum, which hosts the art collection and other items owned by Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria, great scholar on the Balearic Islands and generous protector of its nature; and the Archaeological Museum of Deià, hosting remains from local digging sites.
